don’t understand the market dynamics and needs of these schools well enough to
provide viable solutions. In this workshop, vendors will learn about the many
intricacies of charter schools, their regulations, buying cycles,
decision-making structures and more. With this fundamental information, they
will be equipped to successfully serve and sell to the vibrant charter school market in
